American Pastor David Dykes Works For Passage Of Uganda's "Kill The Gays" Bill

Box Turtle Bulletin has the quote from Pastor David Dykes during an interview with Ugandan television:
I’m extremely upset that our state department is putting pressure on Uganda to recognize homosexual behavior. And I’m praying that Uganda will say, “We don’t want your money, America. It is blood money. It is sin money.” I hope that you will continue to stand strong on what the Bible defines as the definition of a real marriage. Already in Canada, there’ve been pastors who have been arrested for simply saying from their pulpit that a union between two men or two women is an abomination in the sight of God. A Canadian pastor was arrested for that. But there’s also maybe a law soon that says we could be arrested if we say anything bad about gay marriage or about homosexual behavior. It would fall under the category in America of “Hate Crimes.”
According to Dykes, if the United States cuts foreign aid to Uganda over the bill, American evangelists will "step in as the Church in America to try to make up sending resources over here."

UPDATE: BTB's Jim Burroway sends us an update noting that David Dykes delivered the opening prayer to Congress in 2008. Burroway adds that Dykes is a "very big wheel" in the Southern Baptist Convention's overseas missions. Note that wingnut Rep. Louie Gohmert praises Dykes in the below clip.
